Astrology with Squidward

Astrology with Squidward logo

Astrology with Squidward is a series of SpongeBob SquarePants shorts that originally aired from 2000 to 2001. They feature Squidward giving horoscopes for six of the 12 zodiac signs.

SpongeBob's Nicktoon Summer Splash also featured at least one exclusive Astrology with Squidward segment, set in the living room of SpongeBob's house.[1]

In July 2019, Nickelodeon India released a second series of zodiac-themed shorts titled Undersea Horoscopes. All 12 signs were covered, unlike in Astrology with Squidward.

Characters

Synopsis

At the beginning of every short, Squidward plays his clarinet. After that, he congratulates the birthday of one zodiac sign and then starts "predicting." At the end of every short, Squidward says "I'm Squidward, your Nicktoon astrologer," says something random, and then plays his clarinet again.

Squidward's astrology segments during SpongeBob's Nicktoon Summer Splash are set in SpongeBob's house. They feature identical animation for Squidward and his clarinet. As part of his summer hosting duties, SpongeBob comments on Squidward's predictions, much to the latter's annoyance.[1]
